RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Will Rhymes.

2012

Rhymes was the surprise Opening Day starter at second base for the Tigers last season, but a rough April (.217/.329/.233) led to his loss of the gig and eventual demotion to Triple-A Toledo. The 29-year-old was able to regain his form with the Mud Hens, hitting .306/.377/.390 in 104 games. Despite the success at the minor league level, Detroit never gave Rhymes another shot at an everyday job, resulting in just 10 more appearances for the Tigers after the All-Star break. The Tigers decided to non-tender Rhymes this offseason. He’ll have an uphill battle finding an everyday gig at the major league level and will likely have to prove himself at the minor league level again or take on a limited utility role with a new team.

2011

After a rash of injuries hit the Tigers' middle infield last season, Rhymes was a surprise spark to the team late in the year. The diminutive (5-foot-9, 155-pound) second baseman hit .304 with 19 RBI and 30 runs in 191 at-bats with Detroit. Rhymes doesn't pack much power, but he has shown the ability to swipe his fair share of bags with 125 steals in 655 minor league games. Despite his late-season success, Rhymes could be forced to battle for an Opening Day roster spot in spring training. With Carlos Guillen and Scott Sizemore also in the mix at second base, Rhymes will have his hands full trying to carve out a big enough role to contribute in most formats. AL-only and deep leagues should consider Rhymes a decent batting average play and a sleeper for steals, but his playing time will likely be too limited to be a steady contributor in shallower formats.
